About Liposuction

If you are considering liposuction or other types of fat removal like the many men and women that have visited us from New Orleans, Metairie, Houma, Baton Rouge, Mandeville, Covington and beyond please come in for a free consultation.  At Dr. Black Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery, we believe that liposuction, Sculpsure, and Kybella are effective tools to correct problem areas by reducing fat and enhancing the overall appearance of our patients. Liposuction can bring dramatic results to male body builders or male patients looking to achieve a slimmer, stronger figure. It is generally very helpful to male patients who are in need of minor cosmetic adjustments that can not be achieved in the gym. Our board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Elliott Black and Dr. Summer Black, can help men and women with problem areas that are not responding to diet or exercise.  Liposuction should not be considered as a form of weight loss, but should only be considered for patients who are already in good health, but need assistance toning trouble areas.

If you have problem areas that aren’t responding to diet or exercise, consider taking a step toward a more contoured body with surgical liposuction.  Contact our office in Metairie, LA to schedule a consultation.  If you aren't ready for a surgical procedure but still have areas of fat that you would like reduced, read more about our non-surgical fat reductions such as Sculpsure and Kybella on this site.

Liposuction for Men

Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that isn’t just limited to women.  Men deserve to feel good about their bodies too, and the professionals at Dr. Black Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery are here to help patients achieve the ultimate physique they’ve always wanted.  Men retain their skin elasticity longer than women do, and the areas of fat beneath the skin tend to be firmer and more vascular.  Because of these factors, Dr. Elliott Black and Dr. Summer Black believe that liposuction is usually very effective in men.

In many cases, the ideal male body is trim and athletic, featuring broad shoulders and chest, a taut abdomen, and a narrow hip-thigh area.  As men age, however, pockets of fat tend to develop around the abdomen, the flanks, the breast area, and/or along the chin.  Keeping this in mind, our team can administer liposuction to address these fatty areas that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Liposuction for Women

Liposuction can also benefit women in many of the same ways.   Many women desire to have a lean, trim body as well. Liposuction may be needed to target a stubborn area on the body that is resistant to diet and exercise.  Women may also seek the help of a trusted plastic surgeon after their bodies have changed drastically after giving birth.  Our team can target specific areas on the body with liposuction to help patients look and feel beautiful and trim.

Do I Qualify?

Liposuction is most commonly performed on the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, and even the neck. The best candidates for liposuction are those who are in good health and experience:

  • Excess fat deposits that cannot be altered with diet and exercise
  • Disproportionate areas of fat on the body
  • Good skin elasticity

What to Expect

Liposuction is usually performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under local or general anesthesia. During the procedure, one or more small incisions will be made near the treatment site.  A thin tube (cannula) is then inserted through the incision to loosen the excess fat, then suctioned out. The length of this procedure varies among patients, but it typically takes between 1 – 3 hours to complete.  Following their procedure, patients should wear a compression garments for the first few weeks to reduce swelling and ensure optimal healing.  Patients can expect minimal scarring at the incision site and with proper scar management, it will be difficult to notice.  In order for the results of liposuction to last, the patient should maintain a stable weight through a healthy diet and exercise.
